Create a homemade wooden toy for your little ones this Easter, the perfect special present. Just follow our simple step-by-step guide.
Let's go - step by step
You need: pencil, glued wood panel, bunny template
Start by cutting out the printed bunny template. Then mark the outline of the bunny on the glued wood panel using a pencil.
Start cutting out the bunny
You need: Jigsaws, g-clamps
Next fix the wood panel to the workbench using screw clamps and then use a cordless jigsaw and a curve-cutting saw blade to cleanly cut out the bunny. Then cut the rod to a desired length, we cut ours too 14cm.
A tip for those who also want to cut out the wheels themselves: Simply cut the wheels out of the scrap wood using a holesaw accessory (6 cm diameter) and then sand them thoroughly.
Get a smooth finish
You need: Multi-sander
Now to sand down the cut out bunny with a multi-sander to achieve to a smooth finish.
Fitting the wheels
You need: wooden wheels, eyebolt with wood thread, cord
Nearly there! Drill holes into the feet and wheels using a 8mm drill bit and then slide the rods through both holes. Next attach the wooden wheels onto the rods and screw an eyebolt with a wooden thread into the front axle. Then lastly attach a cord to the bunny as a leash and you're done.
